Name: Julie A Carda

After studying dance in Europe, Julie returned to the United States and graduated from Creighton University. With a desire to expand her knowledge of the arts and spirituality, she graduated from St. John’s University in Collegeville with a Masters in Theology and Liturgical Studies. Over the past twenty years, she has taught high school and college courses, and facilitated workshops on the healing arts while occasionally writing for academic periodicals. Her quest to acknowledge world religions and the desire to expose the similarities of love and peaceful living, led her to travel, live, and study with shaman practitioners, herbal healers, Native American medicine women, Buddhist priests and other earth-based spiritual teachers. Through these experiences and experiences with global metaphysical teachings, she learned to honor the eternal Source of love in all people. Besides writing fiction, Julie is co-creating a Space of Love through advocacy for Kin Domains.

The Grandest Adventure


Deep inside is the urge to discover the unknown--whether physical, intellectual or spiritual in nature. It starts with dreams of wide open space. Akin to Hatsheput, Alexander the Great, Marco Polo, Ferdinand Magellan, Meriwether Clark, Ernest Shackleton and Neil Armstrong. But when the wide open physical space is no more, humans turn toward the vast unknown within the intellect and spirituality. Akin to a blank canvas, mound of clay, chunk of marble, stretch of prairie, mountain top, or meditation practice, regardless of the platform, the urge to discover the unknown must be soothed. However, as history has been loath to say, the grand adventure isn’t about finding, claiming, owning, devouring but about allowing the urge a place to swell, cascade and gently flow in a co-creative process. It is an urge to be part of, and intimately connected to, something as much or more than the Self.
